# Which sensors can be used to feel breeze blowing by the robot?

Am faced with a situation where my robot needs to feel breeze blowing by over its artificial skin. While there exist many types of tactile sensors, nothing seems to fit the bill. I might abandon the idea altogether but just wanted to know for the sake of know how if there exist sensors to do this sort of thing. Given significant advances in MEMS/NEMS, am assuming there are sensors as sensitive or even more sensitive than hair follicles in detecting touch

• Why are you looking at tactile sensors for sensing pressure? Are you specifically wanting to combine tactile sensing with sensing the air flow bear the skin? – hauptmech Feb 14 '19 at 18:38
• What level of sensitivity do you require? – Adam Feb 15 '19 at 4:22
• @Adam preferably as good as humans/animals....if possible even better – user221238 Feb 15 '19 at 11:01

• For example when it feels the wind while simultaneously watching leaves of the tree flutter and also hear it rustle, it should conclude that it's due to the breeze. .... this may not be a realistic goal ..... a dog has more intelligence that your robot can ever have, yet a dog is unaware that leaves rustling and fluttering is due to wind (i have two dogs and i'm pretty sure about what i said) ...... also, what should the robot conclude if it is windy and it sees a water fountain or a flock of birds? – jsotola Feb 14 '19 at 21:35
